Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend
Orlando, Florida
January 4 - 8, 2017

The Happiest Place on Earth just got a whole lot sportier with a full range of Disney-themed races, including a marathon, half-marathon, and a very “Goofy” 5K family fun run. Tour the theme parks and pose for plenty of photo ops along the way. The Walt Disney World® Marathon is the final race of the weekend where you can complete the most magical 26.2 miles on Earth and run through all four Walt Disney World® Theme Parks, starting at Epcot®, continuing on to the Magic Kingdom® Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios before an exhilarating finish back at Epcot®.

Half Corked Marathon Weekend
Osoyoos, B.C, Canada
May 27-29, 2016

The Half Corked Marathon has become one of the most highly anticipated events in Canada. Winding through vineyards in the heart of Okanagan wine country, this 18km route is designed to be enjoyed and savored. Save the record-setting for another race and spend this one gazing at scenery and sampling local food and vintages at 10 or so stations along the way. Warning: tickets go on sale in February for this event and sell out fast. Remember, this race is all about having fun. If you are looking to set a land speed record, this probably isn’t the event for you. But you will certainly have an awesome time!

Bay to Breakers
San Francisco, California
May 15, 2016

San Francisco’s Bay to Breakers is the oldest consecutively run annual footrace in the world since May 1912. With a starting point near the San Francisco Bay, the 12K race runs west through the city and finishes at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto the Pacific Coast’s Ocean Beach. A quintessential San Francisco experience for 102 years, the race is interwoven into the fabric of the city and is a true reflection and celebration of life between the breakers and the Bay.

Marathon des Sables (MDS)
Ouarzazate, Morocco
2016 SOLD OUT!

Registration for the 2017 MDS, which is scheduled from April 7-17, 2017, is open!

The Marathon des Sables is billed as the toughest footrace on earth. The race is a grueling multi-stage adventure through a formidable landscape in one of the world’s most inhospitable climates—the Sahara desert. The rules require you to be self-sufficient, to carry on your back everything, except water, that you need to survive. Under the scorching sun, lifelong friendships are fostered through days spent running across saltpans, up desert-mountains, through ruined towns and through the occasional sand storm.
